One of the biggest problems when playing the game of golf is losing your golf ball. In fact over 300 million golf balls go missing every year and it takes about 1000 years for the golf ball to fully disintegrate releasing high levels of zinc when it does. “Albert Buscato, CEO of Albus Golf, told CNN he wanted to improve on the range of biodegradable golf equipment on the market. And he did. The “Ecobioball’s” outer layer, made of a recyclable plastic polymer, degrades completely within 48 hours to reveal a dense inner ball of fish food, according to Buscato. Since they are single-use balls, their cost will be considerably lower than the average golf ball and Buscato is confident this means the “goldfish-friendly” option will be a hit with buyers.” There are drawbacks to this of course. The new golf balls weigh less which means they won’t go as far, however if you are on a cruise ship then these balls would be perfect.
